I don’t believe exit polls that claim half of white college women voted for Trump — though clearly that must have been true in many parts of the United States. It is certain, however, that a majority of white women voted for him, his policies, his speech, his history.
So when I read essays that blame white *men* for Trump I stop and move on.
White women own this too.
Patriarchy? Sure. Name and blame patriarchy.
But don’t let white women hide. They have more education than white men. They have experience at the receiving end of patriarchy. They own this too.
